To “retreat” means to withdraw to a quiet or secluded place. This is exactly what Vida Nova Retreat aims to offer our guests. This luxury Hout Bay hotel and spa is situated on the scenic southern slopes of Table Mountain, surrounded by panoramic views of the Table Mountain National Park. The hotel’s strategic location is only 20 minutes from the Cape Town city centre, and 25 km from the Cape Town International Airport. A prime spot for travellers looking for accommodation in Hout Bay.

Vida Nova Retreat is a perfect choice for our guests to enjoy a peaceful, relaxed stay, while being close enough to lap up the sights and sounds of Cape Town. Our retreat offers guests superior services and a broad range of modern amenities to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.

“Vida Nova” means new life. Through our luxury, eco-conscious properties, we aim to connect our guests with nature, while preserving and protecting our environment through our carbon offset partners.
